In one showhouse I spotted a desk. As I have been sorting out my various crafty stuff and the piles of paper etc for my card making I have used the big cupboard in the porch to store things away, ever realising the potential the room had to be mult-functional. Yes a porch is great but as we have such a lovely open view of the garden I felt it was a shame not to work in the porch, but not to have everything everywhere, so the desk gave me an idea.
To look at it (yes I bought one on-line) it's not imposing but it's the perfect size for my laptop/sewing machine. When I am working (as I was yesterday) the stool next to the desk is ideal for my printer - as the big cupboard is right next to the desk stuff can be put away when I have finished and the tesk doubles up as a console table.
The view from the desk is inspiring too - yesterday Puss was in her favourite spot for an afternoon nap!
I brought down a wicker chair which is comfortable when working at the desk - when not in use with the desk I just move it against the back wall.
Above the chair I have used picnic baskets for further storage. I am so pleased with these - only costing £5 each from the charity shops - so much nicer than plastic containers.
Jon is busy at work so I am not sure when we will make a start on his room but in the meantime I am happy to have a place to potter in and keep warm
